Relaxed now uses patched version of TagSoup. Fixups from TagSoup that 
are not caused by tags that are defined as ommitable in DTD are reported 
as errors now. First tests show that this heuristics work well and it is 
sufficent to emulate more SGML-like parser for HTML documents. Peter can 
give you more details.

Of course, patched TagSoup is not full fledged SGML parser with support 
for things like markup minimalization, but usage of such features in 
HTML is discouraged as browsers doesn't use real SGML parser anyway.
